Trojan horse

Matt Drance:

You cannot put your future in a competitor’s hands. So what do you do? Do you enter uncharted territory, make your own mobile operating system, and hope people switch?

Of course not. You make your competitor’s system yours — overnight. Facebook Home is a trojan horse designed to steal the Android experience, and the Android user base, right out of Google’s hands.

When I wrote about Facebook home I commented that it puts Android on the back foot.  The more I think about it, and read articles like this one, the more I think that this is a very agressive move by Facebook.  It’s not working with Android to produce home, it’s utterly replacing it, slowly.
